"champions league finals are often tight affairs. five of the last twelve have ended all square after ninety minutes. two germans teams meet up here having drawn both league games in the bundesliga this season. teams from the same country meeting in the final resulted in draws when both english and italian sides met in recent years. "
Borussia Dortmund 0.75 (Asian Hcap)
"the two german power houses have met one hundred times in competitive fixtures. dortmund have won twenty six and there have been twenty nine draws. given the history there may be some value backing borussia on the handicap. the teams have met twice before in european competitions and although they were some time ago both were draws. "
Under 2.5 (Total Goals)
"these two sides put a lot of goals past the two spanish giants from barcelona and real madrid in the last round but the final could be a more cagey encounter. both league games this season ended one goal each. in the most recent meeting in the german cup a weaker than normal dortmund lost by the only goal of the game. the teams met in the quarter finals fifteen years ago and both games were goalless "
"two warriors of the ring meet in a rematch for the super middle weight title. kessler won the wbc belt on that occasion but they fight for the ibf and wba versions here. both boxers are in their mid thirties and have seen a lot of hard rounds. there is not a lot between them but froch has the advantage of fighting in england with a lot of home support. kessler is too long in the tooth to be worried about the crowd and the odds on the dane look a bit too big for a pick 'em wncounter "
Draw or Technical Draw (Outcome 5-Way)
"it is a bit surprising to see adalaide byrds name down as one of the three judges for the fight. byrd has had a few controversial results on her record. when calzaghe beat hopkins, convincingly on two scorecards, byrd gave it to hopkins. there are other examples if you check the c.v. the fight is expected to be close with rounds hard to score. with all the imponderables it is not impossible that one or more judges could score it level "
George Groves by KO TKO or Disqualification (Outcome 5-Way)
"groves has to make a good impression here if he is to have a realistic shot at the world title. they have given him an idal opponent, one who was knocked out iin the second round of a bout last year against a less than accomplished boxer than george who has knocked out fourteen of his eight opponents "
"tony has a good opportunity to get back into the light heavy weight limelight with a return match versus chilemba who looked more surprised than most when the verdict was given as a draw by the judges in the first fight in march. tony was in front of his home town fans and may have tried too hard to impress. with a better game plan and more relaxed attitude he should be able to sway the judges votes tonight "
"won this event four years ago following a tenth and twelfth the previous two years. has had two top twenty five finishes here since then before his career stalled with injury. came eighth at the volvo in china a few weeks ago and a return to wentworth could see paul go close again "
Luke Donald (Win Tournament)
"luke attempts to win this event for the third consecutive year. also finished second three years ago and has a third place and a seventh in the past six years. good recent form with a top twenty placement at the players championship two weeks back "
"has to be on the short list due to his record at this course. won the event both last year and three years ago has made the cut on all seven visits and has not finished worse than ninth. zachs form this season took a turn for the better with a top twenty at the masters last time out "
John Huh (Win Tournament)
"there were some bigger prices about huh earlier in the week. he has been supported because of some good recent form including a ted eleventh at the masters and a top ten last week at the byron nelson. was fifth on his first look at the course twelve months ago "
"the hottest player on the senior tour at the moment with four top ten finishes from his last five events. came from five shots off the lead to make a play off before triumphing at the insperity championship. good odds for esteban to lead outright "
"has played only a few frames in professional competitions since last seasons event but can never be discounted from this event. could be a bit rusty so may be a slow starter but will also be refreshed as he has not had to travel around the world this season. has been warming up with practice games versus ebdon who says he is over priced at the current odds.
